Proximal Soil Sensing Will Render Soil Cores Obsolete: Here’s Why

That’s a pretty bold title. Why should you believe it? To understand why proximal soil sensing (PSS) will obsolete soil coring and laboratory analysis (specifically for digital soil mapping and precision agriculture), we must first understand how each arrives at its answers. And, we must consider how close those answers can ever get to the
